Welcome to Tōtara Hospice

Tōtara Hospice provides free multi-disciplinary, specialist holistic palliative care services to the districts of south and southeast Auckland. We are a local charity and our community of approximately 520,000+ people is one of New Zealand's largest and most diverse.

Tōtara Hospice provides free care to all eligible individuals and their families, so that patients and their whānau are able to focus on living every moment that they have left together. At Tōtara Hospice we embrace diversity of age, ethnicity, means, lifestyle or religion.

Our services support those with life-limiting illnesses such as cancers, heart, lung or kidney failure or neurological diseases such as motor neurone disease, with a focus on ensuring in every way possible that a person's final journey is experienced with comfort, care and dignity.

Our broad team of staff provide physical, emotional, psychological and social care and support. We are proud to work alongside colleagues in our community including General Practice and Hospital teams to achieve the best outcomes possible for our patients and their families.
